The first of our 2024 meetings will be held on Wednesday 7th February, at 7.30-9.30pm in the Lounge at Littlebourne War Memorial Hall Complex (w3w link), High St, Littlebourne, Canterbury CT3 1ST
You will all be aware of the threat that Asian Hornets pose to beekeeping, and insect life generally. The hibernating queens will soon be emerging to try to establish nests this Spring. We need to intercept these. Mark Hobday has been preparing plans for the Canterbury branch to do its part in combatting this threat to beekeeping, so do try to come along.
We will be providing monitoring traps, and attractant liquids to everyone who can join us at the meeting. If you could bring an empty liquid container (recycled drinks bottles would be ideal, 500-1000mL) that would be great. Mark also sent out a newsletter recently, and it would be helpful if you could review that, and bring any questions you might have.
No need to let us know if you are coming; however, it’s always nice to accompany a cup of tea/coffee with cakes/biscuits, if any of you have the time to make/bake.
